Skyelyfe Takes You Behind the Scenes of Interscope Artist Dreezy’s ‘House Party’-Themed Music Video for ‘Wasted’

January 27, 2017

Hip-hop artist Dreezy (born Seandra Sledge) dropped the video for her latest track “Wasted” last month, but skyelyfe just got its hands on never-before-seen shots taken from the libation-filled day of filming.

Noisey’s “Queen of Chicago Rap”—who has collaborated with Gucci Mane, Jeremih, Wale and T-Pain—had everyone on the L.A. set feeling relaxed with plenty of Electric Sky Wine to go around.

The wine, which touts three variants (Rose, California Red Blend and Pinot Grigio), has quickly become a favorite among music festival goers and celebs alike, including Christina Milian and Kristen Bell.

As evidenced in the photos, “The vibe of the shoot was festive,” Daniel Sena, Head of Digital Marketing for Interscope Records, tells skyelyfe. “Even though the cast was composed of actors, everyone was getting along like they’d known each other for years. Maybe it was the house party-like setting, but it had the real feel of a house party.”

This Indie Rock Duo Filmed Their Entire Music Video with an iPhone – and the Result Is Pretty Dope!

September 4, 2015

Western_Scene_skyelyfeOh, the powers of simple technology!

Not that an iPhone 6 is simple, by any means – but compared to much more complex and expensive methods of capturing moments on camera, it is pretty impressive that L.A.-based indie rock duo Western Scene was able to film the music video for their latest single relying solely on this device.

The 3.5-minute video for “See What You Want To,” created and directed by Wet & Reckless frontwoman Emily Wilder, is a stop-motion adventure that tells the story of a couple’s relationship from two different perspectives.

But enough with my description – See the cool concept for yourself!

WATCH: The Knocks Release “Dancing with Myself” Music Video & Announce New EP Release Date!

March 10, 2015

TheKnocksDancingWMyselfThe Knocks slowed things down a bit on their latest track “Dancing with Myself.”

In the just-released video for the sultry song, the musical duo (B-Roc and JPatt) are seen making their way through NYC’s Chinatown, with synchronized choreography in the background from people they pass on the way.

To coincide with the launch of their latest work – which was directed and produced by Tyler Richardson, Jameson Rich and Kevin Tkach – the electropop duo have announced they will release their five-track So Classic EP on April 7, hitting the road for a brief, seven-stop “Dancing with Myself” tour, which kicks off with two performances at SXSW. The incredible twosome – who I have had the pleasure of seeing live several times – will hit L.A.’s Echoplex on May 29.

Check out the “Dancing with Myself” video below (and buy your tix to see them in action because they are by far one of the best live acts I have seen!):

Grammy Winner Cedric Gervais Gives Skyelyfe the Story Behind ‘Chic’ New Music Video, ‘Love Again.’ Watch All the Wild, Paint-Filled Fun!

December 11, 2014

CedricGCedric Gervais recently got himself into a bit of a mess – but for all the right reasons!

The electronic dance musician, recently best known for his Grammy-winning remix of Lana Del Rey‘s “Summertime Sadness,” just released the ENDS-produced music video for “Love Again,” his melodic collaboration with singer Ali Tamposi. The black and white video features a slew of people dancing and tossing paint everywhere. Amidst the paint throwers, Gervais and Tamposi sit in agony over what is portrayed as their failed relationship. Finally, at the end, they get caught up in the paint action as well – a shooting experience Gervais says “wasn’t too pleasant,” but still “fun” nonetheless.

Skyelyfe caught up with the regularly touring French producer, who talked about how the song came to be, working with Tamposi (whose lengthy credits including writing Kelly Clarkson‘s “Stronger”) and keeping the video “classy,” unlike “a lot of the cheesy videos out there.”

skyelyfe: Obviously the message behind “Love Again” is clear, but what was the actual inspiration behind the song?

Cedric Gervais: I was working on new material, and I work with a lot of songwriters and they send me songs very basic that are written on piano or guitars. If I hear something [I like], I take it and I turn into in my world. So I went through a lot of songs and [when I heard “Love Again], I was like, “Wow, this is a major song and I want to take this song to the next level.” Ali’s voice is unbelievable. The way she’s writing is amazing.

SL: How did you and Ali end up teaming up on this song?

We got together through managers. We met and started working together, and she’s an amazing person – very fun to be around. Then we came up with the concept of the video and shot the video. It’s great to work with such great people.

SL: I love the video. It’s so much fun. Was that real paint?

It’s real paint. It wasn’t too pleasant, but it was a fun video to shoot. I have to give credit where credit is due. That was Ali’s concept from the beginning to the end of the video. She had a vision and just kind of rolled with it. It wasn’t something where we had scripts sent to us. The song meant so much to her, so I just let her vibe with it. We started at 6:00 a.m. and finished at midnight. I think the video is very classy. There are a lot of cheesy videos out there and I think this is a chic-looking video. I really like it.

SL: Can you explain more of the story in the video?

It starts out with the younger versions of ourselves. We’re two people who lost interest. We’re heartbroken, but when we were young, [things were different].

SL: What can we expect from you in 2015?

A lot of new music. I’ve been back in the studio. I want to win another Grammy, so I’ve got to get back to work! You can expect a lot of exciting stuff.
